Let’s keep it real: the star of Transformers: Age of Extinction is Optimus Prime. However, that means we can’t show love to Mark Wahlberg, the non-alien star of the movie, which comes out on Friday.

Mark, who has become the ultimate action star of our era, takes the reigns from Shia LaBeouf, who held it down for three Transformers movies.

In the new Transformers movie, Mark’s character, Cade Yeager, must protect his daughter, Tessa Yeager, from the Decepticons.

In celebration of #ThrowbackThursday and the fact that the movie comes out tomorrow, let’s look back at Mark’s evolution from rapper (remember Marky Mark?) to action star.

Check out his progression in the gallery below.
